BBC Philharmonic - Cracking Elgar’s Enigma Code 

John Storgårds conductor
Roberto Giaccaglia bassoon
Roderick Williams baritone

Arvo Pärt Swansong
Geoffrey Gordon Anima Mia (BBC Commission: world premiere)
Martin Six Monologues from ‘Everyman’
Elgar ‘Enigma’ Variations

‘Nimrod’, one of music’s most endearing tributes, lies at the heart of the ‘Enigma’ Variations, and there are many more touching portraits to unveil here. Each movement dedicated to in his own words ‘his friends pictured within’. Edward Elgar loved cryptic codes and he hid one in his most famous work – it is still to be cracked even to this day.

In Swansong, Arvo Pärt creates a mesmerising anthem to the 19th century priest and scholar, Cardinal Newman.

The music of Frank Martin, operatic in scope is brought to the concert platform by world renowned baritone Roderick Williams.

And then a bold hybrid, inspired by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra’s very own Principal Bassoon, Roberto Giaccaglia along with the works of Swiss artist HR Giger, Anima Mia promises to be an extraordinary animal. Alien vs. Bassoon.
